A very true statement by Jeff Green. Although this is not a tweet of great magnitude, Kobe’s facial expressions are something I have failed to fully appreciate through the years. Whether it’s a bad call by the refs, or simply being impressed by his fellow teammates, Kobe always knows how to work his expressions. The little things about Kobe are what truly make him one of the greatest players of this decade, and as every year passes, the clock ticks.
No, this is not the Isaiah Thomas you’re used to; Not the former general manager and coach of the Knicks, nor the All-Star point guard for the Pistons. This is the breakout rookie for the Sacramento Kings who has been tremendous since becoming the starting point guard. After posting 23 points, eight rebounds, and 11 assists in his first start, he followed up with 24 points on 5-for-8 shooting from 3-point range, and five assists. Although the Kings fell
Although drawing some angry replies for misspelling Monta (he used Monte), I couldn’t agree more with King James. Monta Ellis, averaging 22 points and 6 assists a game, was snubbed from the All-Star game, and may be one of the biggest snubs there is. He scored 32 points in their win against the Clippers Monday night, and has been one of the most consistent scorers in the NBA this season. Although the rest of his game is moderate, Monta
Couldn’t have put it any better myself. In a thrilling game in which the Thunder won in overtime 124-118, Durant, Westbrook, and Ibaka posted absurd lines. Durant scored 51 points, grabbed 8 rebounds, and 4 steals; Westbrook had 40 with 9 assists and a block; Ibaka, the most intriguing line, posted 14 points, 15 boards, and an incredible 11 blocks. They combined for 105 of their 124 points, and literally put on a show on national TV. When Durant
Interesting approach, Marc. Although his tweet may be a bit odd, his reasoning for it is justifiable. The Grizzlies posted an impressive win against Golden State, their 4th straight, on the heels of a Tony Allen tip-in with 5.6 seconds left. Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry brought their A-game, scoring 69 of their 103 points and shooting a combined 10-17 from long range. It was a dogfight to the very end, and the red-hot Grizzlies kept up their impressive
I hate to continue to post tweets about the whole Jeremy Lin phenomenon, but this seems like the start of a waning story. The Knicks lost to the lowly New Orleans Hornets after winning seven in a row, and it came in an unlikely fashion. Looking sloppy since the opening tip, the Knicks, due in large part to Lin’s NBA season-high 9 turnovers, lost at home. This was a considerable upset as the Hornets are completely depleted with injuries
Smith, back from his stint playing in China, is finally back in the USA and ready to make an impact in the NBA. This is nothing to sneeze at, however. Smith is a phenomenal athlete, and makes an immediate impact wherever he decides to land. The Knicks seem to be close to getting a deal done, which would make them an even scarier team down the stretch. With Smith, the Knicks could roll out a lineup of Jeremy Lin, Smith,
And just when you thought the Jeremy Lin drama would start to fizzle, this happens. Steve Nash, alluding to the movie Like Mike where an orphan puts on a pair of shoes and suddenly dominates the NBA, could not have used a better example. This is becoming a fairy tale overnight, and there are just a million positives about it. Surely, the story is going to be aired on overkill, but Jeremy Lin is an absolute publicity machine for the
